Jaeter Corp. is selling AirLogic’s
icombi Bluetooth Headphones for $149.99 — the company says it’s the only place to get them in the US. The icombi headphones work with iPods and with Bluetooth-capable cell phones, providing wireless connectivity.
The icombi Bluetooth Headphones feature a behind-the-ear design. The icombi Bluetooth Headphones come with a Bluetooth transmitter that connects to the dock connector on any iPod with a dock connector, including the video iPod and, using a small attachment, the iPod nano. The headphones also work with Bluetooth-equipped cell phones, and incorporate a microphone as well.
The headphones cover the whole ear, instead of earbuds, which just rest in place in the ear canal. They also fold for easy portability. The icombi headphones are available in white to start, but a company representative told Playlist that they should soon be joined by a black version as well.
The icombi Bluetooth Headphones support A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), AVRCP (AV Remote Control Profile), HSP (Headset Profile) and HFP (Hands-Free Profile). Internal, rechargeable batteries offer about 180 hours of standby time and 15 hours of talk time, or about 10 hours of music playback time. An AC adapter charger is included.
Bluetooth 1.2 compliant, the icombi Bluetooth Headphones work up to about 30 feet away from the source. They play back 16-bit stereo audio with a frequency response of 20Hz to 20,000Hz.
On one side, the headphones feature remote control capabilities that let you play the last track, play the next track, control volume up or down, pause play, and power on/off.
